This is an interesting article about working in a modern internet sales warehouse for a huge company. Worth a read.
This particular excerpt tells what to expect:
“Zoom zoom! Pick it up! Pickers’ pace, guys!” we were prodded this morning. Since we already felt like we were moving pretty fast, I’m quite dispirited, in fact.
“Really?” I ask.
“Well,” the supervisor qualifies. “Just everybody else is usually really sad or mad by the time they’ve been working here this long.”
It’s my 28th hour as an employee.
